Termina Madonna su 'dulce' concierto

La cantante interpretó el tema Sorry a petición de sus fans mexicanos

Juan Carlos García

Ciudad de México (29 de noviembre de 2008).- En la última parte del concierto del Sticky & Sweet Tour 2008 de Madonna en el Foro Sol, dividida en los segmentos conceptuales "Gypsy" y "Rave", los 50 mil asistentes que entraron, de acuerdo a OCESA, vibraron con la cantante.

Con las canciones "Devil Wouldn't Recognize You", "Spanish Lesson" y "Miles Away", el público se mostró receptivo y atento a lo que hacía la diva en el escenario, pero como los dos primeros no han sido sencillos promocionales, no toda la gente se prendió.

"Esta es una muy buena oportunidad pare decir que estoy feliz de estar de regreso aquí después de tantos años, muchas gracias, creo que ésta es la mejor manera de iniciar mi gira por Sudamérica", expresó antes de cantar "You Must Love Me".

En la variedad de golosinas musicales, la gente encontró el gusto por la presencia de la estrella y de su estilo.

Al final de "Get Stupid", apareció en las pantallas una imagen del nuevo Presidente electo de Estados Unidos, Barack Obama, con la que consiguió una nutrida ovación.

Y fue en este segmento en el que Madonna prendió más que en ningún otro momento a los asistentes al cantar "4 Minutes", "Like a Prayer" y "Ray of Light".

Como es su costumbre y como lo ha hecho en otros conciertos en distintas partes del mundo, pidió al público que eligiera una canción y de las que le pidieron, la ganadora fue "Sorry". La interpretó sólo con su guitarra y de manera acústica.

El paladeo de golosinas y dulces con el sello de la Reina del Pop concluyó con "Hung Up", que puso a todos a bailar y a corear y el pilón lo dio con "Give It 2 Me".

Great coverage Fabian and all! :D

Press reports mention over 55K people on the Foro Sol, and that the screams when she came to stage were among the loudest ever experienced. She started the gig at 9:10 PM saying "Hola Mexico" and madness ensued! Press is not happy with Madonna calling Mexico as part of South America (whatever). While Madonna was performing, her kids were having a Mexican dinner at the Hacienda de los Morales restaurant.

notice how people were watching the concert from a bridge....people were singing to candy shop and yelling madonna, how sweet :D

and everybody kept saying "she sang everything i wanted to hear" which is not surprising since Madonna has been consistently successful with every album in latinamerica. i think most of the request in this region might be recent songs....
